PNB wishes to thank Miss Universe Inc. and Rubenstein Public Relations for their kind cooperation during the Miss Teen USA Pageant. Aryn Lieberman and Brandee Schwalb in particular were indefatigable, unflappable, just plain nice. Their help in our preparations and in the credentialing process was invaluable.
We are also thankful for the help of numerous Miss Teen USA state directors, mothers, fathers, friends and the occasional well-meaning "spy." We are grateful to our fans for pouncing on our every mistake. Correction is the route to perfection.
Finally, we thank the 51 contestants who gave us something to write about. Stay in touch, young ladies. You've only just begun.
